PEOPLE – Ines Erdmann, Dr. rer. nat.



My path in neuroscience already started during school. As a part of a special school program, I came in contact with neuroscientific research at the Paul-Flechsig-Institut for Brain Research (Leipzig). Here I “translated” scientific findings into a “school friendly” language and took successfully part with this project at “Jugend forscht”. Driven by this experience I deepen by understanding in biology (BSc) and neuroscience (MSc) at the universities of Hamburg and Magdeburg. During my PhD thesis I established a method to investigate cell-type specifically newly synthesized proteins in Drosophila melanogaster at the Dieterich lab. After taking a break from science for 3 years working in industry, I decided to go back to science and joined the Albrecht lab. Here I am investigating the role of NPY in autophagy in the mouse hippocampus.
